Among the many things . . .

I care about are blues, banjos, and birds. The alliteration is a must here, because all three are combined in the posts of Julie Waters, Vermont musician and photographer. Of course she lives way down south in Vermont. But at least us Northerners can get there via the internet.

Of course, thanks to our "do nothing" governor, all of us can't listen to a song without loading pauses (unless you have an AT&T iPhone account--and yes that is a gratuitous plug--for those of us desperate to have at least a tiny bit of real estate in the modern world).

Nagoya/Vermont: They're Back!

The Nagoya/Vermont group is back from their trip to Japan and the first installment is up with wonderful pictures. Well worth the browse. It's these small sparklings that show up in a generally messy world that give a little hope.

Out of the depths once again

Hey! It's not much to look at, but I woke up this morning with those colors, or a close approximation, in my head. First time that's happened since my last post on November 27,2009.

I know two things are responsible. The Art of Action exhibit currently at STAART Gallery in St. Albans (reception was last night), and talking to Susan Abbott again. It seems to be a potent mix for me. And that both things occurred at STAART Gallery added something extra; there is a vibe in that place that's hard to describe, but almost tangible.

Putting the family homestead on the market more or less wiped my soul of color. And, for that matter, most everything. I think I know how a mole feels on the first real spring day.
